Inclusion of Migrants and Refugees

About the partnership

With large-scale newcomer arrivals in 2015-16 highlighting the limits of conventional approaches to reception/integration and calling for more coordinated responses across different stakeholders and levels of governance, the Urban Agenda Partnership on Inclusion of Migrants and Refugees was created with the goal to improve migrant and refugee inclusion in the medium- and long term.
